WAR by Sebastian Junger

“Among men who are dependent on one another for their safety—all combat solders, essentially—there is often an unspoken agreement to stick together no matter what. The reassurance that you will never be abandoned seems to help men act in ways that serve the whole unit rather than just themselves. Sometimes, however, it effectively amounts to a suicide pact.”
